This ider-ider painting is probably from the late 19th century and it may be the work of Kamasan artist, Sambug. It was collected by Anthony Forge from the temple of the dead Pura Dalem Bugbugan in Gelgel, Klungkung District in 1972-73. Size: 37x741cm

Ratna Manggali is returned to her mother by a courtier and two attendants of Erlangga’s court. Calonarang is depicted as an old woman with supernatural power, but not evil.
